Nevada Travel Ideas

  • Living Like a King In an Aria Sky Suite Penthouse

    Vegas has a lot of great hotel rooms and one of the finest hotels on the strip is Aria. It has everything needed for an awesome Vegas experience including great bars, fantastic food, wonderful staff and a center-strip location that is close to all the action. Things got a bit better this week though with the launch of the T-Mobile Arena and The Park entertainment district right next door. While I was expecting to have an awesome time, my mind was blown away when I received word that their PR Team had not just given me a room here but actually a Sky Suite Penthouse Room! 

  • Rivea At Delano - Dining at the Top of the World in Vegas

    One of the things I love about Vegas is all the amazing restaurants. It seems there is a never ending supply of creativity that is both pushing the culinary as well as architectural arts. What I didn't expect was to find an astonishingly awesome dinner at the top of Delano on the far south end of the strip. That's where Rivea sits and offers diners an unparalleled view of the entire strip. They say retail is location, location, location and this is absolutely true for Rivea. Luckily for us, the service and food was equally fantastic - making for one of the best dinners I've experienced in a long while.

  • VIP Shooting Experience at The Range 702 in Las Vegas

    When it comes to visiting Las Vegas, you can't help but be drawn into the glitz and uber luxury resorts of the strip or the quirky fun of downtown but there's a lot more to this city than gambling resorts. Luckily, I'm here to help you explore that "other side" of Las Vegas and we're kicked it off with a visit to The Range 702, Las Vegas's largest indoor shooting range!

  • Party Like an Egyptian at Luxor Las Vegas

    Having opened in 1993, Luxor is one of the icons of the Las Vegas strip and kicked off a decades long building boom of new mega resorts. While the strip offers a lot of unique opportunities - this is you only shot to sleep in a pyramid! While considerably smaller than the "Great Pyramid" of Giza (230 meters per side vs 183 meters), Kufu's designers didn't think to add a 120,000 sq ft casino, Carrot Top, Criss Angel Believe or "Fantsy" topless revue, so we're willing to accept that it's a bit smaller.

  • Beer Pong, Bowling and Burgers at Harrah's Reno

    Las Vegas may be the king for people all around the world, but there's another city in Nevada that is the Prince... or at least the Duke. While Las Vegas has virtually no redeeming qualities outside of being hot as hell, Reno is located close enough to the ski resorts around Lake Tahoe and a major airport that this could be your basecamp to launch an awesome Reno / Tahoe mancation adventure.

  • All Aboard! V&T Railroad to Virginia City, Nevada

    Allllllll aboard! It's time to take a journey into the past and explore a time when the west was barely settled and riches were sitting just below the surface of the earth simply waiting for someone to uncover them. During this time, one of the greatest mining booms in the United States happened in Virginia City, site of the 1859 Comstock Lode.

    That discovery instantly turned men into millionaires and the city exploded from just a handful of miners to 25,000 residents. With that explosive growth and the city's remote location at 6,200 feet elevation on the side of a mountain, a railway was needed. While the V&T railway isn't the exact same as what once serviced the city, it is a great way for guests to reach Virginia City from Carson City today and it provides a better perspective on Virginia City's history than simply driving up the twisty turny roads.

  • Three Suite Options for a Guys Weekend In Downtown Vegas

    Up until this year when it finally came true, I'd always dreamed about one day having a suite in Vegas and living like a high-roller. On the strip this can put you back thousands of dollars per night. Sure there are some incredible options but without an unlimited amount of money, I'd rather save my money for food, drinks, and entertainment. Downtown Las Vegas is a different story and I had the opportunity to check out three different suites that are all awesome options if you are planning a guys weekend or a bachelor party in Vegas.

  • Best Places In America to See Bald Eagles

    Hunting isn't the only excuse to pack up your backpack and head off into the woods with a few of your friends for a guys weekend. Sometimes it is great to simply enjoy nature by observing one of the most beautiful birds in the world. The American Bald Eagle is thankfully coming back strong thanks to conservation efforts across the country. Few birds match America's majestic bald eagle for inspiring awe. Winter is prime viewing season for these incredible raptors, which often are more visible against the backdrop of the season's sparse landscape. Head to a national wildlife refuge to try to spot an eagle on your own or, better still, head to one of these refuges for an organized tour!

    Having seen these amazing birds in the wild, it is an experience that every man should see since these birds are as beautiful and graceful as they are amazing predators and they make amazing photography subjects too, so read on to see if there is a location near you...

  • Pools, Parties, and Cocktails at The Cromwell Vegas

    Each time I go to Vegas it's a different experience and that's an amazing testament to the diversity of entertainment options available in that city. This time, I had a chance to check out two of the newest resorts on the strip - The Cromwell, and The Linq. Over the past few years, these properties have both gone through some significant changes but it seems that Caesars has finally got a concept that works.

  • A Quick Stop at Buffalo Bill's Casino Resort in Primm Valley Nevada

    As you drive on I-15 from Las Vegas to Southern California, you will find a cluster of hotels, a "fashion outlet" and a California Lottery store. Each time I drive by, I've wondered what they were like but I've never actually stopped till this past weekend. Frankly, I'm still not sure why people would stop there instead of going all the way into Vegas or back home to Los Angles, Orange County, or San Diego. Despite that, here's what we found inside :)

  • 10 Awesome On-Strip Vegas Ideas For Your Ultimate Guys Weekend

    Last month I was joined by a group of other male bloggers to explore the best that the strip has to offer. This was a heck of a weekend that was filled with amazing experiences that I can't wait to do again. While every Vegas guys weekend is going to be different but here are our top 10 things to do on the strip.

  • A California Couple's Heavenly Weekend in Tahoe

    After recently spending the majority of a week in South Lake Tahoe, CA enjoying winter activities with family and friends, I find this quote below very fitting and can relate the experience we had at Heavenly Mountain Resort with the most simplistic interpretation. All the activities, amenities, and natural beauty that Heavenly Mountain Resort and surroundings have to offer is specifically designed to be an exceptional playground for adults and kids to experience and enjoy on a regular basis. Heavenly Mountain Resort will keep you coming back. It truly is a little bit of heaven on earth!

  • A VIP Las Vegas Guys Weekend At Aria

    I now know what it means to be a Vegas VIP - it is an experience unlike any other I've ever had the opportunity to experience and the best part was that I got to share it with 6 of my best friends and fellow bloggers!

    We did a LOT of stuff in just three days, but this is the city where excess is normal and you can always recover once you get home. Our home base for the weekend was Aria but we also explored Mandalay Bay, Mirage, and Bellagio. 

  • Our Favorite Top 10 Hotel Pools Worth Planning a Trip to Visit

    Almost all hotels and resorts have pools, but in the ever competitive travel market, there are few resorts that take the concept of a resort pool a step further with extreme opulence or features you never even considered. The following are our top ten favorite ultimate hotel swimming pools.

  • Vegas – The Ultimate Mancation

    The dream life as lived by the fabled Rat Pack film stars – Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis, Jr. – can still be found in Las Vegas, the neon-lit fantasy land in the Nevada desert that hawks its 24/7 entertainment venues like a successful hustler on the Mississippi paddle steamers of old.
